About me

I am a unique lawyer who answers his own phone and takes each case from start to finish.  I am very involved in technology and I have lectured in over 40 countries on a variety of issues.  I am very involved in the Illinois State Bar Association and I stay current on employment related issues including sexual harassment and hostile work environment.
